Ready In:
24 2-inch-square brownies




  • Butter a 13 x 9-inch pan and line with buttered parchment paper (or lined with buttered foil).
  • Set rack at the middle level of the oven and preheat to 350°.
  • Bring a saucepan of water to a boil and turn off heat. Combine butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over pan of water. Stir occasionally until melted.
  • Whisk eggs together in a large bowl, then whisk in salt, sugars, and vanilla. Stir in chocolate and butter mixture, then fold in flour.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake for about 45 minutes, until top has formed a shiny crust and batter is moderately firm. Cool in pan on a rack. Wrap pan in plastic wrap and keep at room temperature or refrigerated until next day.
  • To cut brownies, unmold onto a cutting board, remove paper, and replace with another cutting board. Turn cake right side up and trim away edges. Cut brownies into 2-inch squares.
  • SERVING: Serve the brownies on their own or with ice cream and hot fudge sauce.
  • STORAGE: The best way to store brownies is to wrap them individually and keep them at room temperature in a tin or plastic container with a tight-fitting cover. Or freeze them.
  • NOTE: If you have a 12 x 18-inch commercial half-sheet pan, you may double this recipe easily.

    Love the name. I won't be telling my doctor about these, though :) I cut the recipe down to fit a 9-inch square pan. Very rich flavor. I think some chopped pecans would be good in them, also. I served with a scoop of low-fat vanilla bean ice cream.

    This is a very good brownie and easy to make. Unfortunately I never got to wrap them up and keep them for the next day as the recipe advises. Once the kids saw these they were gone in no time. I did use semi sweet chocolate chips and it worked fine for me. Thanks for the recipe.
